A Washington, D.C. City Council member, who in March voiced a conspiracy theory about Jews controlling the weather, visited the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum on Wednesday, but departed the tour early.
During his visit to the museum, which was aimed at rehabilitating his image, Democratic D.C. City Council member Trayon White Sr. did not appear to have a working knowledge of the Holocaust, according to The Washington Post.
Tour guides at the museum were reportedly confused by White’s lack of knowledge and desire to learn about the Holocaust.
At one point during his tour, White viewed a picture of a woman walking down a street in Norden, Germany, surrounded by Nazi stormtroopers. The woman had a sign hanging from her neck that read, “I am a German girl and allowed myself to be defiled by a Jew.”
White asked, “Are they protecting her?”
Lynn Williams, White’s tour guide, replied, “No. They’re marching her through.”
“Marching through is protecting,” White said.
“I think they’re humiliating her,” Williams noted.
After viewing photos of German troops in Poland executing Catholic clergy by firing squad, White asked, “Were they actually manufacturing these weapons?”
White subsequently disappeared from the tour, which was only half complete, while members of his staff continued.
White was also accompanied on the tour by Rabbi Batya Glazer, who explained the walling in of Polish Jews at an exhibit on the Warsaw Ghetto.
One of White’s aides asked if the arrangement was similar to “a gated community.”
“Yeah, I wouldn’t call it a gated community,” Glazer said. “More like a prison.”
When the tour was over, White was located standing alone on a sidewalk outside the museum.
“I’ll be coming back to see more of the museum. I didn’t get a chance to see the whole thing,” he said.
When asked why he left the tour early, White had no answer, and did not indicate whether he had reassessed his comments regarding Jews controlling the weather.
White was criticized in March after he posted a video in which he suggested the Rothschilds, a famous European business dynasty descended from 18th-century Jewish banker Mayer Amschel Rothschild, were responsible for “climate manipulation” and the snow that was falling in D.C.
